Ben Tran

Front End Developer

Hi! I'm Ben, a Front-end Web Developer based in Toronto. I'm a graduate from the Web Development Immersive program at HackerYou and a member of Cohort 13 'Initial Reaction'. Previously I studied at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and graduated with a Bachelor of Information Technology.

I enjoy collaborating with others and writing DRY, efficient code. I'm motivated to push myself to be better at what I do every single day and to never stop learning. On the off times that I'm not coding, you can find me being playing video games or with my camera.

Public Mobile Phone Plan Picker

REACT JAVASCRIPT HTML5 CSS3 RWD GIT

A mockup of a phone plan picker web app made with reference to Public Mobile's phone plans. This application is created using React as a framework and vanilla JavaScript. It is categorized into two main components, one to show the plan options and one to display the price. When a plan option is selected the application's state is updated to store the price of the selected option. The application then calculates the plan price, determines if any discounts are applicable, and then displays the plan value, discount value, and total cost of the plan after subtracting the discount.
